Today's Text in Context

Bob Utley, Philippians 1

Bible Overview

Here's a one-sentence summary of every book in the Bible from the "Overview Bible: Bible geekery by Jeffrey and Laura Kranz"
God's plan for my life is…
God's plan for my life is to make me like Jesus.

"Stinking Thinking"

A list of common negative thought patterns from The Feeling Good Handbook, by David D. Burns, M.D. Each is an example of how many of us habitually think when left to our own devices. Christlike thinking is very different. The article concludes with some practical secular suggestions on how to untwist your thinking. Ultimate freedom from "stinking thinking" comes from a relationship with God through Christ.
It is important that our beliefs reflect reality.
“If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” —C.S. Lewis
"I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God and, naturally, hope that I’m right in my belief. It’s that I hope there is no God! I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that." —Thomas Nagel, The Last Word, Oxford University Press: 1997.

Memory Verse/ Key Verse: Philippians 1.6
…Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2.3-4)
